Get To Know Each Other At Riverfront Coffee Shop

First stop on a date in Omagh should of course be for a coffee and a slice of cake, and there’s no better place than the Riverfront Coffee Shop on Market Street. Offering vegetarian, coeliac-friendly and low-carb options it’s a little more than your average coffee shop.


Romantic Views At Gortin Lakes

Gortin LakesAfter a warming cuppa you could make your way to Gortin Lakes, a network of walks offering awesome vistas of the two lakes. There’s a path which runs between the two and plenty of picnic benches to settle down on to get to know each other better. Nearby Gortin Glen Forest Park is only 6 miles from Omagh and at the gateway to the Sperrin Mountains it offers some spectacular views on walks. Try the Pollan Trail if you fancy ending up at the base of a gorgeous waterfall, or if you’re more adventurous, you can rent mountain bikes nearby. Image via John Campbell on Flickr.


Sperrin Ceramics Studio

Her studio is nestled at the foot if the Sperrin Mountains so you can pop in after enjoying a walk in Gortin Glen Forest Park.
